The Short Hunter is a simple heritage silhouette from Holubar Mountaineering with a lightweight, weather-resistant shell of cotton and acrylic with a down and feather insulation.
Holubar Short Hunter Jacket
Holubar Mountaineering was established in 1946 by Roy and Alice Holubar in Boulder, Colorado. They designed and sold mountaineering equipment and their innovation of mountain-ready soft-gear such as down sleeping bags, tents, parkas and clothing has been highly respected since popularity grew in the 60s and 70s.
To this day Holubar's technologically forward-thinking gear still possesses an unmistakable old school vibe from the USA, now combined with quality construction from their new Italian headquarters - it's worth noting that materials now used in making this jacket are from Limonta, made in Italy.
The Short Hunter is a simple yet effective silhouette which uses a shell made from 82% cotton and 18% acrylic to provide the wearer with some pretty nifty weather-resistance. It's woven into a super fine twill which is durable, warm and smooth and it's exceptionally lightweight for performance. The lining is made from 100% polyester which is smooth and soft against the skin and it traps a low profile quilting of down and feather which provides the wearer with an incredible warmth to weight ratio. This insulation also fills a collar for additional warmth and comfort.
The jacket has a two-way full-zip with a snap-up stormflap and it has a drawcord-adjustable hood and hem, as well as Velcro cuffs for a flexible and personal fit. It has ample storage with a zippered chest pocket and two front flap pockets with side openings working as handwarmer pockets. On the inside it also has a zippered security pocket.
Branding is simple an with embossed design to all toggles and snaps and it has an embroidered logo to the shoulder. On the inside it also has a picture patch of Boulder, Colorado, celebrating the company's heritage.
